December to Bring New Faces to Miami Station

By Kevin Eck 

WSVN viewers will see two new anchors on the Miami Fox affiliate beginning in December.

Josh Moser will take over the main sports desk from Steve Shapiro, who is retiring in December after 23 years at the station.

Vanessa Borge, pictured left, will replace Christine Cruz as co-anchor of the morning news show Today in Florida.


“We usually don’t have to fill two very big positions like this,” Alice Jacobs, vp of news and local programming for WSVN, told the Sun-Sentinel. “I have not encountered this before. People tend to stay here because it’s a good place to work.”

This is a homecoming for Borge, who started her career as a reporter and anchor at CBS News in Miami, before working as morning anchor for Good Day LA at Fox-owned KTTV in Los Angeles.


Moser, pictured right, was sports director at WLUK in Green Bay, Wisc. He started his career at KREX-KFQX in Grand Junction and Aspen, Colorado before joining KUSA in Denver.



Borge announced her move on Instagram. Moser announced his new job on Facebook in October.

I HAVE SOME BIG NEWS!!! 🎉After three wonderful years in Los Angeles, I’m heading back home to MIAMI! My last day at @foxla will be Wednesday. So why am I leaving? Well, this year was undoubtedly a burden for all of us…but it was also a blessing. 2020 reminded me what I already knew – family is EVERYTHING! 3,000 miles separating me from them was already torturous but the inability to see them for months has been unbearable. I love you, LA but my heart remained in Miami and it’s time I return to it. NOW! Where am I going?! I am THRILLED to announce I’ll be part of South Florida’s #1 Morning Show, @wsvn!!! Can’t wait to get started and reintroduce myself to my hometown! But until then, I’ll be in LA a few more weeks packing up and saying “see you later” to the life-long friends I have made here! More sentimental and long-winded posts to come! 😊 #MiamiBound #ImComingHome #WSVN
